Formerly known as Windows Live Wave 4, Windows Live Essentials is available for download as a beta copy. The Microsoft software includes a suite of free applications including IM (instant messaging), photo/movie editor, email client and a live blogging too.
What’s different about this beta release is the continued integration with cloud technology, making use of such services as SkyDrive (Microsoft’s online storage solution), Flickr, YouTube, Facebook and many of the popular free email apps (Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo).
As part of the suite of applications, Windows Live Essentials includes Windows Live Mail, Windows Live Photo Gallery and Windows Live Writer. You can download the beta now from the Live.com site and a three minute preview video on the service is also available.
